Stark Winter Light Exposes FC's "Pho Pas"
An almost good shot ... see the missing wing tip? Of course you don't, it's MISSING!
Arrrghhh ... so close.
Oh well, at least I got to see a pterodactyl.
There was a distinct absence of heat out in the marsh yesterday. The wind was whipping at almost 20 miles per hour and the day's high never rose out of the 40's.
Most of my photos from that expedition show huddled waterfowl and waders, hunkered down and hiding their bills in an attempt to stay warm.
This egret was one of the few birds daring to fly in the brisk wind. No photoshopping here, ... how did I get the dark background on a bright sunny day?
Hmmmm ... such a mystery.
When you screw up a potentially great shot like that pelican at the top of this post, just remember every sandbar has a silver lining.
It doesn't make any sense, but it might take your mind off the once in a zillion photographic moment that you let slip through your grasp.
Then get back out there.
